Checking and re-setting the Ram Pump.

The Ram Pump was not pumping water so Joe and I go down to see why it is not pumping water. ! Joe is looking at a small piece of plastic that came down the pipe.

The compression chamber is off and the valve looks good. Joe has lifted the rubber to expose the holes which allow the water to flow into the cylinder thus compressing the air to send the water up the tube.
 This picture shows the rubber lying flat. The valve is in perfect condition.
This display measures the pressure in bar of the water going up the pipe. We are measuring 4 bar. Very good. !
This is a "shot" of the Ram Pump reservoir showing a good overflow.
This picture shows the mid stroke and the complete sealing of the valve. Good work Joe. Joe built the pump on the island of Jersey, off the coast of England.
Finally Joe set the delivery to 5 liters a minute.
